Egypt President Abd Al-Fatah Al-Sisi will make a speech before the newly elected House of Representatives, in a while.
The speech will be addressing domestic and regional issues, including the country’s current economic situation.
Moreover, El-Qasr al Ayni Street witnessed an intensified security in preparation for Sisi’s Visit.
Egypt’s new parliament is composed of 596 MPs, an unprecedented figure in Egypt’s 150-year-old parliamentary history.
“This big number, in addition to more than 100 guests, will push the number of those attending the speech to more than 700,” said Parliament’s Secretary-General Ahmed Saaddin .
The last time an Egyptian president visited parliament was in December 2010 when the now-ousted president Hosni Mubarak addressed a newly-elected People’s Assembly which was elected in a process marred by alleged widespread rigging by the then-ruling party, the NDP
